Hilt of sword, Royal Marines
Royal Marines sword, which belonged to Lieutenant-Colonel Edward Congreve Langley Durnford (active 1851-1877). The hilt of the sword consists of a steel open half-basket guard, with three bars, a fluted pommel and a plain back. The black fish-skin grip is bound with twisted silver wire. The slightly curved steel blade has a flat back and a wide groove extending to within 260 mm of the double-edged spear point. The obverse of the blade is engraved with the words 'Royal Marine Artillery' on a garter surrounding a grenade, with a crown and a lion above, and further decoration above and below.
